Lummus Technology’s E-Gas™ gasification technology has the potential to make use of our most abundant energy resource—coal—in such a way as to dramatically reduce its environmental impact. This proven technology is one of the cleanest, most efficient commercial processes for converting coal or petroleum coke into a hydrogen rich synthesis gas ideally suited for substitute natural gas production, power generation, and refining or chemical manufacturing applications.
The process can cost-effectively remove more than 95 percent of the mercury in coal, and greater than 99 percent of the sulfur can be recovered and marketed for use primarily in the fertilizer industry. Additionally, the gasification process produces no ash and recycles by-products into useful products, including road construction materials.
With more than 25 years of proven commercial experience, the E-Gas technology for gasification provides a highly-efficient, environmentally superior and competitive base-load power alternative. In a refinery setting, the technology can process high sulfur petroleum coke into power, steam and hydrogen for the refinery and surrounding markets.
Lummus Technology’s E-Gas™ technology produces valuable syngas and steam from petroleum coke or coal. The resultant clean, sweet syngas can be used as fuel gas for power generation, or further processed to generate hydrogen, synthetic natural gas, methanol, liquid motor fuels or many other chemicals.
Lummus Technology's E-Gas Plus® technology is designed to produce valuable syngas and steam from petroleum coke or coal and residues coming from refinery processes.
